It would be very difficult to imagine a better B & B experience than this. Anne and her husband, Ian, provide the right balance of professionalism and friendliness - she very chatty and extrovert, he much quieter but with a warm laid-back approach. Anne had to rush off while we were there due to a family illness but Ian coped with total calm and warmth while she was away. Rooms and food are excellent but the definite highspot is the wonderful 8 acre rambling garden.
